The Luminato Festival is returning to Brampton on Friday, June 9 with the world-wide sensation, Walk with Amal. The event is an opportunity to participate in a global movement of hope and solidarity. Walk with Amal features a colossal 12-ft puppet representing a 10-year-old Syrian refugee, symbolizing the resilience and courage of displaced children around the world.
A historic investment of over $16M was allocated in the 2023 City of Brampton Budget for the arts, including the design of a new Arts & Culture Centre. Councillor Santos is assuring residents that the Lester B. Pearson Theatre will remain within the Brampton Civic Centre facility and will be jointly used by the City and students attending the new Toronto Metropolitan University Medical School.
